Sri Nisargadatta Maharaj

1 Dec

The cup is conditioned by its shape, material, use and so on. But the space within the cup is free. It happens to be in the cup only when viewed in connection with the cup. Otherwise it is just space. As long as there is a body, you appear to be embodied. Without the body you are not disembodied – you just are.

Nisargadatta Maharaj, from the classic ‘I am That‘, p 224
